The PSU itself is working Thread Tools Search this Thread 10-21-2011, 02:05 PM #1 Jooo Registered Member Join Date: Jun 2011 Posts: 58 OS: Vista, 7, XP, Linux I noticed today that the PSU fan is not spinning in one of my computers. http://da4design.com/fan-not/antec-power-supply-fan-not-working.php
And the System temperatures whilst doing the above are around 40-53 (My system hasn't gone above 53 degrees Celcius yet). I think it would be best if you download asus utility for monitoring temperatures of cpu, mobo, and also for voltages, pc probe. Is it just a little problem that can be fixed easily - like just changing the fan, or could there be some broken circuit? On the upside, i found another Case fan and added it to the rear part of my case and I just Improved my System Temp by about 3-5 Degrees Celcius.
They're fine. I'm actually amazed it's lasted four years. In electronics school a guy was tossing around a used high-voltage, high capacitance capacitor. mikeconicFeb 10, 2015, 12:46 PM So I did some testing over the weekend.

I myself have zalman 7000b and I'm happy how cool it runs (34C idle, 40-45C load) Now I remember what I wanted to tell you in previos post. I think the rear fan is blown. Here are my system specs just in case: CPU: Athlon II X4 635 Quad Core 2.9GHz MOBO: Biostar A770E AM2/AM2+/AM3 Mobo GPU: ATI 4670 HD 1GB GDDR3 RAM: 2GB DDR2 (533Mhz) read this post here Aug 3, 2005 #6 Herk TS Rookie N8theGr8 said: i just finished building my computer, and it loads into the BIOS fine, and all fans are working EXCEPT the power supply
I am POSITIVE that the noise comes from the PSU though. sensing that does not turn the fan on at all until a certain heat level is reached within the PSU. Just buy another. I think the rear fan is blown.
Since the PSU is not taking in warm air its fan won't have to work as hard and can run at a lower RPM which once again helps with noise reduction. http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1784581/rear-case-fan-spinning.html Computer was LITERALLY just working Will my "Antec EarthWatts EA500D" Power supply be sufficent Power supply help Which Power supply to get? Computer Exhaust Fan Not Spinning Please Read!!! Speedfan I just checked and right now it is running at 35/36 idle in the bios.
Or is there something in my settings I should be changing? the only way i can make it go away is by turning the switch on the power supply off. And if my computer was only needing 400 RPM, is there a way I can overwork my computer in a sense, so that I can see if it is actually able Set your MB to control the chassis fan headers (voltage control, not PWM, if there is an option).http://www.silentpcreview.com/files/images/fans-2013-120/rpm-antec.pngAs far as making the fans ramp up in speed, anything that involves ripping/processing

studying electronics and being an electronic engineer is totally different. re apply the heatsink? DDarko RAM and Power Supply Support 8 09-19-2011 07:42 PM Erratic power supply fan.
A simple 4-pin fan port should not be able to run your fans at less than full speed. The temperature reading were pretty much exactly the same, with Temp 3 going to 44C as a max, and Core 0 and 1 maxing at 54C and usually between 49-52 C.So Ask ! I did what you suggested in option #1 and set my fans to "Normal" in the BIOS and the rear switch to High.
The first instance of Temp 1 and 3 when idle were 26 and 22 C, and when stressed Temp 1 would not change but Temp 3 would go up to 40-44 Even better would be to take the fan out and try it in another computer and see if it works. · actions · 2008-Jan-20 2:36 pm · Dead Skin [email protected] Dead Join thousands of tech enthusiasts and participate. My PSU has been a beast for over 4 years.
If not, the unit is bad and time to rma. I am using stock thermal paste not AS5 so that may also be a cause, but I didn't think it would be this big of a gap. Do I need to improve my fan set up?As far as the fans, they are the 120mm rear exhaust and the 140mm top exhaust that came with the case.
